  • Side effects

  • Adherence

    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 1 other Daily
Advice & Tips: I AK tested great for 4 tabs a day of Chlorella w/ my AM supplements for several years. I believe it helped detox my heavy metal load. About June '14 I started testing for only 2 tabs a day. And Sept '14 I now test off of it! Maybe the LDN (since Nov '13) might be why.
